    I have grown lettuce for me… kale and silverbeet fir the chickens and rabbit outside over winter… sheltered by the garage and house … but on the south side of my house here in Canterbury… created a no dig garden with the basalt stone piles from my earth quake repairs as an edge … they thrived despite having nothing covering them…
